Dorné is based in Rotorua and has been in the industry since she left school. With 30 years’ experience in financial services, she has developed and gained vital knowledge in Fire and General Insurance. In the last 5 years, she has expanded her skill set specialising in Life, Medical and Disability Insurance. Dorné has worked with many different Insurance agents like State Insurance, Tower Insurance, Preferred NZ and Insurance People to expand her industry acumen.
Dorné is known for helping people make the best choices in life to ensure that they, and their families, are well protected against life’s challenges. She has mainly focused on small families and personal insurance as she enjoys relating to them on a personal level by making real connections. Having numerous successful claims under her belt and sadly from first-hand family experience, she fully understands the need for Personal Protection Policies as situations can seriously impact clients’ lives as they think this will never happen to them.
Dorné has a passion for educating clients on insurance jargon, how policies work, their purpose and tailoring it to the client’s final goal. For example, Dorné won a TPD claim for a client who had lost her income due to a serious dog bite and the insurance company accepted and changed their policy for future clients. This was a great outcome and prospective clients should know that Dorné will fight for them as well as things that she believes are right.
Dorné is currently working towards being a Registered Financial Adviser level 5 and acknowledges how focused and overwhelming it can be. However, one step at a time, as she is determined to accomplish this achievement.
